Everyone in the fashion world lives for Fashion Week. Whether it’s in New York City, Milan, L.A.–wherever, Fashion Week always brings out fashion’s best and most innovative souls. Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) is pretty much a carnival for fashion lovers that kicks off Fashion Week. All over the city, boutiques stay open, hire a DJ and rock out as New York City’s best dressed dips in and our of each venue.
I was strolling to the bus stop by my apartment, when I spotted sequins. There was a lady, selling vintage, right there on the streets of Harlem, so of course, I had to check it out. I pulled this shirt from the rack, eyeballed it, figured I could probably squeeze in it and did. When the lady told me it was only $5, I just had to have it!
The shirt contours perfectly to my body and even cinches my waist without adding a belt (even though I added one). I paired this shiny number with a pair of black trouser shorts from Avenue for $6 and black booties with a cowboy heel, also from Avenue for $35. I got 25% off because they sent me a bday coupon! Thanks Avenue!
I wasn’t sure if I could get away with doing too much on the accessories since the shirt seems to be shining on it’s on, so I just added a ring, two bangles and studs. You don’t want to do TOO much when you’re shining like this. Or maybe I could have gotten away with more, since it’s Fashion Week.
As the night went on at FNO, I noticed there were quite a few people with the same idea as me–outshine everyone! My kindred seqin spirits inspired me to post up all about my sequin spotting! Check ’em out!
First up, the roomie. She’s sporting this sequin blazer with mixed patterns. Bold and beautiful!
